Question about Pioneer VSX-36TX

1 Answer

I HAVE A PIONEER VSX35 ELITE RECEIVER THAT HAS BEEN OVERLOADING. IT SEEMS TO NEED MORE VOLUME TO MAINTAIN NORMAL LEVELS. IT CYCLED OFF THEN CAME BACK ON TWICE. NOW IT ACKS LIKE THERE IS NO OWER, ONLY RED LIGHT IS ON. IS IT MORE EXPENSIVE TO HAVE IT LOOKED AT AND FIXED THAN TO JUST PURCHASE ANOTHER ONE.

Having a live-and-kicking VSX-36TX receiver which I love, I feel for you. But the prices have come down dramatically since we bought them. I paid $1200 for mine new. If I needed to replace it I would go with a used one from eBay and consider searching specifically for one that uses the same remote but doesn't have one included. The price would be low.

Like this beasty, no remote for $250 delivered:

or this one with a remote for $232 delivered.

Turntable hookup to AUX or CD (no Phono input) only producing very weak sound, even at full volume


You are doing nothing wrong at all. It's just that as you say it has no phono input. Which means the sockets you have will NOT amplify the signal. So you need to buy a magnetic cartridge pre-amp and once connected to the aux the weak signal will be at the normal level.

I just bought a VSX-820 and it seems to shut down automatically as soon as turn the volume up


Make sure the speaker wires are tight.

Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts and overloads.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.

If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced hands-on tech.

Pioneer VSX-01 TXH receiver turns off


Sounds like the speaker circuit is overloading or the receiver is overheating.

Check to make sure all speakers are in phase. Pos to Pos. Neg to Neg.

Make sure receiver has plenty of cooling room.

Hope this helps.

Receiver shuts off as volume is turned up beyond


try connecting only 1 speaker at a time. try it on each of the binding posts (connection terminals), crank it up to locate which one of the speaker terminals is overloading the amplifier.

Then connect a different speaker to that terminal to see if it still overloads. This should determine if its the speaker that is overloading that particular terminal or if something is wrong with the amplifier.

Just for fun make sure that the cables you are using don't have any fraying and that none of the speaker binding posts have any loose strands of wire possibly grounding out to the chassis of the receiver.

My pioneer amp vsx d508 reads overload.what to do?


Sounds like a bad amplifier IC.
Unhook all speakers at the back of your pioneer. turn it on and turn down the volume. If it's no longer in overload you have a bad speaker or speaker wires touching somewhere.
If its still in overload it's prlobley a amp IC and will cost between $25-$60 just for the part if you can replace it yourself.

Receiver shuts off when you turn up the volume.


your safety overload circuit is kicking in and prenting the amp from shorting. you have a bad speaker most likely or horn. try operation it with headphones next. try bookshelf speakers at a moderate level to test if it persists then the amp has a biggger problem.

Overload


Ok, how much is "a bit"? If you are operating your unit at the 50% or more level, your unit is working as it should, as DVD and CD players output more signal than other sources...accordianman

Low Audio Level


When I had problems with my VSX-D608, I resorted to downloading the manual for VSX21. This model seems to have the same features in the ELITE form. It has helped me figure out some speaker problems.
